The Mystery Of This Ghost Ship In North Carolina Still Lingers Almost A Century Later

In 1920, a 225-foot, five-mastered schooner by the name of Carroll A. Deering left Boston to pick up coal in Norfolk then head to South America. While a commonly traveled route, the crew and ship had a smooth drop off, but their return is still debated to this day.

Wow! What a crazy story, I really do wonder what happened to the ship…my guess is pirates. What do you think?

In other North Carolina history, do you remember the epic and devastating blizzard of 1993?
